As indicated by the Rebate Calculator provided, The United States Department of Justice is committed to helping preserve competition in the real estate industry through its competition advocacy efforts. Given that Illinois allows real estate brokers to provide rebates to consumers and to customize their real estate service offerings to meet their customers’ needs, the Department of Justice has not advocated that Illinois change any of its real estate laws or regulations.
Illinois’s minimum service provision requires real estate brokers entering into exclusive brokerage agreements to accept and present offers and counteroffers and answer their clients’ questions in every real estate transaction.
In 2008, a bill prohibiting broker rebates was introduced into the General Assembly. The Department of Justice wrote a letter on February 21, 2008 opposing the bill. The bill was not voted out of committee.
In 2009, a bill was introduced in the General Assembly that would extend the life of the minimum services statute until 2020. On March 9, 2009, the Department of Justice wrote a letter opposing renewal of this provision of the Illinois Real Estate Licensing Act. The legislature passed the bill in October 2009.
